How to Use databot™
It’s never been easier to engage students with fun, hands on activities. Simply connect databot™ to your iPad, iPhone, Android tablet or phone, or Chromebook using a sensor science app called phyphox. You can literally be up and running with databot™ in just a few minutes! See how in this quick video!
databot™ ships pre-configured to work with an app called Phyphox. Requirements for running this software:
- IOS devices including iPads and iPhones.
- Android devices including smart phones and tablets
- Chromebooks capable of running Android Apps from the Google Play Store
See the setup video on how to use Phyphox with databot™ for more details.
Going Beyond Phyphox – databot is Programmable!
databot™ is pure Arduino based fun. If you aren’t familiar with Arduino, you can take our Intro to Arduino course to learn a little bit about it. There are many ways to talk to databot™ using standard Arduino tools which you can learn about in our setup guide.
- Air Pressure
- Ultraviolet (UV)
- Light (Lux)
- CO2 and VOCs
Speaker for Sound Output
Code databot™ to squeak, beep and chirp based on data it receives.
Programmable Display LEDs
Create interactive light displays or use the pre-built programs to light up databot™ in exciting ways!
SD Card Writer
Log data. You are limited only by the size of your SD card to the data you want to capture!
Mini USB Connection
Charge and program. Simple and efficient – one databot™, one cable.
Wireless transmission of live data using BLE. Visualize real data in real-time on the big screen in the front of the classroom. Play catch with databot™ and watch the numbers!
250 mAh LiPo battery built in. No batteries to purchase, no extra expenses, no hassle. Just pure databot™ fun!
Connect an external temperature probe via 2.5mm stereo jack input. Plug in the included waterproof temperature probe to instantly gain access to live data for chemistry, life science, and environmental studies.
External Analog & Digital Sensors
databot™ LOVES data. The more sensors the merrier so we added this simple 2.5 mm stereo jack input port for connecting additional analog or digital sensors.
Did we say databot™ LOVES data? I2C enables databot to daisy chain hundreds of additional sensors via a 3.5mm stereo jack input.
Built-in case connections for LEGO® and fischertechnik® elements. Connect databot™ to your favorite robot and start running data collection missions!
Also included is a plate for adding a Velcro attachment that enables databot™ to hitch a ride on drones, cars, hot air balloons, bikes, skateboards, pogo sticks and so much more!
